Belfast’s limited-edition £1 coin

A new limited-edition £1 coin celebrating Belfast — this one is part of a specially-made chain of office presented to the Lord Mayor of Belfast, Pat Convery — forms part of the Royal Mint's City series.

The four £1 coins celebrate the cities of London, Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh.

Belfast is the second in the series; London was released earlier this year and Cardiff and Edinburgh will follow in 2011.

The limited edition coin can be bought from the Royal Mint at www.royalmint.com/belfast
